They set out from Rameses on the fifteenth day of the first month; on the day after the Passover the Israelites went out with a high hand and triumphantly in the sight of all the Egyptians,
While the Egyptians were burying all their firstborn whom the Lord had struck down among them; upon their gods also the Lord executed judgments.

And the Lord said to Moses in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho,
Tell the Israelites, When you have passed over the Jordan into the land of Canaan,
Then you shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land before you and destroy all their figured stones and all their molten images and completely demolish all their high places,
And you shall take possession of the land and dwell in it, for to you I have given the land to possess it.
You shall inherit the land by lot according to your families; to the large tribe you shall give a larger inheritance, and to the small tribe you shall give a smaller inheritance. Wherever the lot falls to any man, that shall be his. According to the tribes of your fathers you shall inherit.
But if you will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you, then those you let remain of them shall be as pricks in your eyes and as thorns in your sides, and they shall vex you in the land in which you dwell.
And as I thought to do to them, so will I do to you.
